Summary

Coins are a rich source of information for the ancient historian; yet too often historians are uneasy about using them as evidence because of the special problems attached to their interpretation. Ancient History from Coins demystifies this specialized subject and introduces students to the techniques, methods, problems and advantages of using coins in the study of ancient history.

Christopher Howgego shows through numerous examples how the character, patterns and behavior of coinage bear on major historical themes. Covering the period from the invention of coinage (c. 600 B.C.) until the reign of Diocletian, this study examines topics ranging from state finance and economic policy to imperial domination and political propaganda through coin types.
